# How to use a calculator in statistics. watch

1. Hi, I'm having to self teach myself statistics and I'm finding it ever more tiresome to do it without knowing how to use calculator shortcuts, could someone share/tell me how to use a calculator well? (casio fx 991 es)
2. You can do loads on that calculator. Normal distribution, t distribution and all the other standard stuff like standard deviation, variance, mean etc.

I stare at the functions and don't really know what/how to use it...

Read the booklet that comes with it - it basically tells you all the functions. I know how to use that calculator for stats, but it's not easy giving you a description of it by text...

Here's a video on using it for normal distribution calculations.

Here's one for regression-type calculations.

...I don't know what else you might need, really.

So accurate, the manual probably exists somewhere in my room, I'd have to delve deep though.

Should be a freely available PDF online, google it.
